Trevor Noah is scheduled to return as the host of the Grammys for the third consecutive year.
The Recording Academy announced on Thursday that the former Daily Show host had signed on to host the 65th annual Grammy Awards on 5 February 2023.
Next year’s televised ceremony will mark Trevor’s third consecutive year as a Grammys host.
“I’m super excited to be hosting the #Grammys once again,” the 38-year-old comedian wrote on Instagram after news broke he would be reprising his role. “Three-peat baby!”
Trevor is also set to act as a producer on the awards show, broadcasting live from 5pm Pacific Time on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.
The star-studded event will take place at Crypto.com Arena, formerly the Staples Center, in Los Angeles.
In an interview with Billboard, Trevor said it was “exciting” to finally host the show in LA without pandemic-related restrictions.
“The first one was (during) COVID-19, and it was a completely different way to make the show. And then the next one was in Las Vegas because of the restrictions (in Los Angeles), and that was a different type of show,” he explained. “Now it’s exciting (because) it’ll be the first one for me back in L.A. — that’s hopefully not just normal, but different for the right reasons.”
The 65th Grammy Awards will be produced by Fulwell 73 Productions for the Recording Academy.
Ben Winston, Jesse Collins, and Raj Kapoor have signed on as executive producers, with Raj also serving as showrunner.
